Cooking with Spices: Advieh, Za'atar, and Zhoug

Food/Tasting, Class/Workshop

The skillful use of spice blends can lend your dishes a vibrancy and exotic quality that will amaze your friends and delight your taste buds. Chef Jesse will introduce and demonstrate how to cook with three popular spice blends, as he serves Lebanese flatbread with yogurt featuring za'atar (a tangy Middle Eastern blend using dried hyssop leaves, sesame seeds, and dried sumac), spicy chicken stew with zhoug (a hot sauce originating in Yemen), and grape leaves stuffed with pork and advieh (an aromatic Persian blend).
